Fodor's Review

Tong P. King, a South Korean–born poet, painter, and the author of 609020: Rainbow Ssambap, a book about a healthful, all-natural vegetarian salad he promotes, bought this small inn in 2014 and transformed it into a vegan-based, residential health resort. Classes in painting, poetry, and other body–mind boosting activities take place here. The inn is also open to the public for overnight stays, and rates include a full vegan breakfast. The accommodations options include rooms surrounding a garden patio, as well as separate one- and two-bedroom cottages with fireplaces and full kitchens. Open-beam ceilings and easy chairs give the rooms a casual, almost rustic air.
